Talking Forged rods for the LFX engine!

I'm in the works of getting a batch of forged 4340 H beam rods for the LFX engine made. I'll end up 2 individual rods left that I can't make a full set out of. I'm thinking I would like to send at least one of them out for fatigue testing and analysis to really get an idea of how much of a beating they can take.

I'm sure I could have it done at the manufacturer, but I would like to have it third party tested.

I did stumble across this: http://www.chryslertestservices.com/...urability.html , and have already tried contacting them, awaiting a response.

In your guys' travels have you ever had this done, or know of another source, or multiple sources I could have this testing done at? Sorry if this is in the wrong section, the forced induction area just seemed like the best bet.

I'm actually having 50 rods made, 8 complete sets, 2 extra... I still need to supply 2 more dimensions to finalize the plan, and pricing. They are 4-6 weeks out once I pull the trigger.

Possibly? I'd have to do some research.

No. It was generated and supplied to me by the company that's going to be making the rods based on the rod dimensions I supplied to them off of the GM LFX mechanical specifications document. I have a stock rod, and bearing on the way to me to provide them with the dimension info that was missing from the GM document. I may end up just sending them the rod and bearing.
